She’s back! Maybe.

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks was spotted boarding Air Force One at a New Jersey airport on Saturday ahead of President Donald Trump’s departure for a campaign rally in central Ohio.
Hicks, who was one of the President’s longest-serving aides during the presidential campaign and in the White House, boarded the plane at the Morristown, New Jersey, airport, which is near the Trump Bedminster resort where the President is staying.
Hicks resigned from her White House role in February. Her resignation came a day after she testified before the House Intelligence Committee and said she had told white lies on the job. However, there was no indication that her resignation and the admission to the committee were connected.
Trump is becoming more and more isolated within the White House so it makes sense that he would want his pants presser back in the fold.
Why she would return is another question, after all, you didn’t see Rose and Jack scrambling back aboard the Titanic so they could ride it down to its icy grave.
So how much money do we think he is offering her right now?
I bet it’s a buttload.
Especially since Trump very likely wants to coordinate their stories, because Hicks is also being questioned by the Mueller team. In fact, she already has been questioned.
Hey, you don’t think that maybe the Mueller guys sent her into this meeting wearing a wire do you?
Because that would be awesome!
